|"AVG 7.5 Free Edition still works on my computer but I had to update the virus database manually after downloading the required files from the AVG website"|
Really? Have you tried it recently, like within the past couple of weeks? The final update for AVG 7.5 is dated April 30th...there will be no more.
"I don't care if AVG 7.5 is "officially dead". Windows 98se is also, isn't it ? But both these softwares still run on my computer !"
It's one thing to run an outdated OS, but running an outdated anti-v program is a completely different issue. Using your logic, there was no reason to update from AVG 7.0 to AVG 7.5.
